Many people this winter are going to try to cut back on high heating costs by keeping their house cooler and heating the room they are in to a comfortable level with space heaters. With the high fuel costs and the economic downturn more people than ever before will be trying to cut heating costs this winter. For people that want to use space heaters yet are wary of the dangers of flammable liquid fuels and gases an electric ceramic space heater is a natural choice.
A good ceramic heater should have several heat settings so you can regulate the amount of heat you get. The heated air should oscillate so heat is spread evenly through the room. There should be a switch that shuts the unit off if it is tipped over for safety. Over heat protection should also present for safety. The heater should be about 5,000 BTU so it gives off enough heat for a room.
